...What? There's little to ZERO lag on my P3.

1) Do you have 2.18?
2) Did you cram a lot of widgets onto the three pages?
3) Did you cram a lot of the main icons onto one page (probably home)?

If so, you might want to do something differently...like getting rid of some clutter, or downloading the latest firmware.

(I have only the rectangular digital clock on my main page, and six icons)

There is a small issue where it doesn't seem to respond after selecting and album/song on the first touch from time to time, but nothing bad enough to come on the Internet complaining about. In what way do you find it lagging?

If possible, can you upload a short video of it?
I do believe you, but I want to see it for myself.

(Another reason might be that there's a defect with it)

Get rid of the widgets - they serve no useful purpose, turn the Transparency to off, and reset the skin to blank.

Yep, do this. I mean there is some lag but you're talking a few ms's. And the slide is pretty much so smooth you can't notice it.

My P3 is slower than my Cowon S9, and can't play the lossless WMAs that the S9 plays easily. Forget the Touch. The P3 is underpowered compared to devices in it's own category (no WiFi).

My best guess is that the P3 is a little underpowered, thus why its priced a little cheaper. There is a little lag from time to time, home screen with loadsa widgets or all-songs if you have a big music collection. But generally 2.14/2.18 is very snappy and I can't really complain. He may also mean lag when using your thumb to 'push / pull' the menus up and down (its much faster to use the slider on the right) - its not exactly lag, it just pushes a finite number of songs / list / albums whatever at a time... if that makes sense.

I was actually rather impressed with the P3 UI, it's faster than my LG phone, and all points considered, I'm not looking for miracles. Yes the P3 is underpowered but sometimes one must make sacrifices depending upon what one values.

The only thing that I've noticed is that when I was playing some music and I switched the screen display it started lagging down the song until I hit the triple line bar again. Very strange. But I figure now that I've got it set to album art I won't have to mess around with it anymore.

I agree with MojoPatrol (the first part that is.) if you think about the speed of the processor though, its amazing what they actually did do with the device (especially with the Video playback)

Agreed. When I played the test videos and downloaded one of my torrent movies onto the player. My jaw dropped when I saw how good the quality and clarity was. Even the display of album art (assuming you size it properly) is just flawless! I'm really impressed.

I love the video player (well other than it not supporting some formats etc).

Amazing how such a good picture can come out of such a tiny thing!!!


On Youtube you can download your own videos into MP4 (2 a hour) and it plays awesome on the P3.
